Laser applications to materials and surface analysis
James E. Parks
Resonance ionization spectroscopy (RIS) is a method of analysis in which narrow-band lasers are used to ionize elements selectively and efficiently. It is the basis for several ultrasensitive elemental analysis techniques, one of which is called sputter initiated resonance ionization spectroscopy (SIRIS), now being used for materials and surface analysis.
